  2. Power BI Premium license for Developers

    Add simple hourly based Premium license for developers to try new features and be able to support customers when they buy it.

    Another option would be to provide a paid subscription with a limit of hours per month.

    As we all know that Premium has the similar back-end as for Embedded capacity. So it can be possible to implement.

  3. Power BI pro to have same features Premium has

    As original premium whitepaper said, premium supposed to tackle large enterprise deployment and large number of 'readers'; therefore, pro to have the same features provided by premium; and premium to offer better performance or licensing combo offer. [e.g. we have over 450 e5 licenses with power bi pro but less functionalities.

  4. Add support for parameters to Power BI aggregations

    Currently, if you'd like to filter a table using a what-if parameter or a disconnected parameter table, this is not supported in Power BI aggregations. This is true even if the parameter table is stored in stored in dual mode, similar to the dimension tables.

    Instead, if you try to filter by a parameter, the query will revert to DirectQuery mode and not hit the aggregation tables. See this blog post for more detail.
    https://www.sqlgene.com/2019/03/31/parameters-not-yet-supported-in-power-bi-aggregations/

    My understanding is this is currently by design because the parameter value is neither pre-aggregated nor has any mapping.

  5. Make accesible the raw data from Power BI premium capacity metrics

    We would need to extend the Capacity Metrics dataset to generate custom reports with additional information, and applying RLS to share the info to the business users which own each workspace. As for now, the dataset can't be modified.

  6. Power BI premium capacity metrics - extend it to beyond 7 days.

    I would like to see capacity usage metrics beyond 7 days. Is this going to be a part of any future releases? I should be able to keep an find of the usage metrics for the duration I wish for say few weeks to few months. Specific month, specific week etc. Please add a feature for this.

  7. Add drilldown and Drillthrough capability to CPU utilization chart (Premium Capacity App)

    The current Premium Capacity Metrics app is quite useful (especially with all the new enhancements), however the ability to drilldown on CPU usage would greatly be appreciated.

    At the moment, we can only see the overall CPU usage, without having the ability to pinpoint the datasets/reports that are causing this.

  8. More Affordable Premium Nodes

    With XMLA endpoints coming to PBI Premium, this licensing model is becoming very relevant to a lot of smaller organizations and ISVs for whom the dedicated capacity is not necessarily the main selling point for upgrading from Pro licences.
    The option for a premium subscription at a more affordable tier -- with reduced capacity -- would be a great help to all users trying to convince management to make the investment.

  9. Pinning Datasets to Memory

    In the current state, the Power BI service will evict a dataset from memory if it needs to free up memory for other datasets and if the dataset is relatively idle (not being queried or refreshed). Teams should be able to exclude certain datasets from this behavior to ensure these datasets will always be in memory and thus refreshes and queries will not encounter delays due to loading the dataset back into memory.

  10. if I want to publish workspace as an APP and share it with larger user community by assigning outlook AD group at APP access level, AD Group

    if I want to publish workspace as an APP and share it with larger user community by assigning outlook AD group at APP access level, AD Group members are not getting the Power BI notifications via email as its difficult to notify that APP is modified recently?
    It will be good if group users can get notification via email.

  11. Role Memberships in XMLA End Point

    Having XMLA end points for all my models in Premium Capacity is great since I can query those models via DMVs to create data dictionaries, relationship diagrams, etc. However, a huge missing piece is being able to query role memberships. I can see the roles, can see the DAX expression used by those roles, but I cannot see the users assigned to each roles. I would like to be able to see the users to audit RLS across all of my models.

  12. Premium Capacity Metrics - show workspace owner

    When investigating memory issues with large datasets it is important to be able to quickly contact the workspace owner(s). On the "IDs and Info" tab can the workspace owner be added?

  16. Possibility to download the full Workspace , instead of downloading single reports in Service

    I want the potential to download the whole workspace in a service , instead of downloading a single file from a workspace, so its saves time when it comes for migration purpose from one doamin to another domain

  18. Analyze in Excel usage metric

    Just like Power BI Online report usage metrics please provide the capability to track 'Analyze in Excel' usage metric as well. Currently the only way suggested by Microsoft is to extract the information via O365 logs which only the O365 admins can access.

  20. It would be good if Power BI Premium Capacity Monitor app is made available to all Pro users as well

    Currently Power BI Premium Capacity Monitor app is available only for Capacity admins. It would be good if same can be extended to Pro license users as well.
